Holiday Debate

Happy holiday they say with a smile, even though theyíre in denial,
All around manís legitimate reason, why we even have this season,
When men and women all about earth, reflect on The Saviorís birth,
Through celebration and praise, as men lift up the Ancient of Days.

There are people on each side, who in Christ, do and do not abide,
Who do refuse to even celebrate, the season some may even hate,
Those, who truly love The Lord, say this season should be ignored,
While those with no religious belief, fill the season with undue grief.

Some peoples dispute the date, adding the calendar to the debate,
Using the harvest time as a reason, to discredit the holiday season;
Thereíre some who could care less, about a time many call blessed,
While they go on about their way; as for them, it is just another day.

No matter what the debate may be, another holiday all men will see,
Most men, again will participate, while others, continue their debate,
Friend, if you indeed participate, just how will your family celebrate?
Will your holiday be a secular kind, or a season with Christ in mind?

Whatever your view of this holiday, Godís Word has so little to say,
But, much to say about The Son, Who came that day, for everyone,
Godís Son, Who came with Salvation, for all men from every nation,
Is coming again, as King to receive, all those, who sincerely believe.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What A Blessed Hope, Bob Gotti

Christ's birth will be front and center in my celebration, too, but I do remember years when I didn't possess the knowledge to do this.

You're able to pack so much truth in your rhymes, it makes them a real pleasure to read.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
